Premiere Date and Time: Tuesday, September 24, 9pm

Network: FOX

Time Slot Competition: Dancing with the Stars, The Biggest Loser and The Singing Bee, The Unit, Reaper

Cast: Hugh Laurie, Lisa Edelstein, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Jennifer Morrison and Robert Sean Leonard

The misanthropic diagnostician Gregory House (Emmy nominee Hugh Laurie) returns to practice at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital Tuesday nights starting September 24 at 9pm on FOX with a whole new crew. At the end of the third season, Dr. House's entire staff either quit or was fired, leaving the anti-hero alone.

It's been announced that the core cast of Omar Epps, Jennifer Morrison and Jesse Spencer will all be returning in some capacity, but not before House interviews a host of replacements. We already know that Olivia Wilde (The Black Donnellys) and Kal Penn (24) are among those who will get multiple episode arcs, with the possibility of becoming series regulars if they can put up with House's mean-spirited, cynical approach to practicing medicine.

In addition, House will be supplying plenty of medical mysteries and big name guest stars (Laurie's good friend actress Emma Thompson is interested in appearing on the show). Fans of the Emmy nominee for Outstanding Drama Series have an additional reason to be excited about the upcoming season – House has claimed the coveted post-Super Bowl timeslot this year, so expect the producers to go all out for that one.
